A8 Will make the body drop
Alon Gordon is first and foremost a writer in search of his own voice. He is a late comer to performing music and being a song writer in bands. He is driven to make the best possible music he can with the limitation he has.
Music inspired by a broad range of Connecticut’s club scenes, electronic music artists, and a classical piano background
A/8 is the solo project from classically trained pianist Alon Gordon. He had been a few CT based bands as a keyboardist before venturing on his own to start A/8. The most notable being X PUN X which had a 5year run performing in New Haven at its well-known venues such as Toad’s Place. He was also a founding member of Shallow Breathing- a gothic/metal band and Cursed Life-and Industrial metal band. These both performed at the famous Webster Theatre in Hartford, CT. Cursed Life and X PUN X both performed at the closing night of CBGBS in NYC.
In the years that followed the bands came and went, but Alon never stopped writing and working on his craft, finding solace in his tried and true method of writing on his Yahama RS 7000. It became the center piece for his latest musical endeavor, a solo project called A/8
A/8 taps into a variety of electronic genres to bring you its debut instrumental Album: ELEMENTS. It Dropped on May 17, 2018 at the famous Café Nine in New Haven, CT The tracks are named after elements from the periodic table. There are 11 of them each exploring various elements of sub-genres of electronic music. This gives the term elements a double meaning.
From the first letter to the eighth number this electronic musician generates a pulsing electro spell guaranteed to put you under. The music has driving beats and a trance like quality that is felt throughout the album.
Where A/8 is Going:
Alon is working on the follow up album to ELEMENTS. The album has a working title called TRANSFORMER. It is a more personal album that deals with his life and reflects changes that have occurred. Transformer will differ from Elements by having vocal tracks and collaborations with other artists. Transformer is going to be a return to Alon’s industrial roots with a continued exploration into his classical piano background. It’s a very integrated man/machine story of transformation and self actualization.

It’s creator is a lot like Vader part man and part terminator, Influences range from: Dulce Liquido and Nine Inch Nails the pulse of Bach never fails. A musical force from the classic world mixed with the beats of contemporary A Positive Life and the Higher Intelligence Agency Beethoven Mozart and bit of Salieri allegro and sense of urgency.
From X PUN X to Cursed life and Shallow Breathing Alon never stopped scheming pushing the boundaries far beyond dreaming. He learned piano and built his own studio. Programmed some bass synth and made it arpeggio. New music is soon to be released with verbal assaults that disturb the piece.
